I was going to wear lolita to Disney World, but I chickened out at the last minute. I figured it'd be too hot, or some other misfortune would ruin my burando.

After our first day at the park, I dreamed that I was wearing my nicest coord outside of Cinderella's castle, and I looked so cute that people were crowding around to take my picture.

Then, without warning, some screaming kid sprinted toward me and head-butted me really hard in the vagina. I dropped like a sack of potatoes. A bunch of other kids pinned me to the ground and started beating me with souvenir drinking cups, and I distinctly remember one of those giant Disney turkey legs staining my dress. It was horrifying.

When I woke up, I found out that my mom took a "cute" picture of me sleeping. So now our Disney Fb album has a photo of me dreaming about getting beaten by children.

I went to a comm meeting under-dressed, like super under-dressed. It was over a hundred degrees, closer to 110f that day. The meet was at a historic location, a very very old building, so I planned for the worst and wore my "not-as-lolita-as-it-could-be-wont-die-from-heat" coord that I've worn before in other situations with that weather...

Then I get there and there's AC blasting in the building; it's nearly 75f inside. Everyone is in brand coords with long-sleeve blouses and complicated wings.
It made me feel so stupid; I have so many nice outfits ready to go, I could have looked much better, but I was more concerned with ending up looking like a hot mess then a potentially sweaty kawaii princess.

>> No.9535730

I laughed. Seriously though, wear lolita to Disney. I wore cutesy Jfashion and got a lot of compliments from the park staff and other attendees didn't even bother me so it was really nice. I mean they're used to seeing people in Disneybound and brides-to-be in giant Minnie ear veils and dresses so really it's not that odd.

I feel like putting that you like anime or cosplay in a dating profile, even as a casual mention is like dating kryptonite. Since I did it, I have run out of people to swipe on tinder and bumble multiple times and my message rate on OKC dropped like a rock.

>> No.9536050

I know that feel. My tumblr was dead quiet. Now I never post on it because two shitty things happened.

Incident one: I put up a candid photo from a meet where a friend and I are holding hands and laughing together. Thought it was cute. Someone thought it meant we were a couple and it got shared through a bunch of LGBTQ pages. No big deal. Whatever. After a day or two, the notes died down.

Then, a few weeks later, incident two happened: the photo got a fuckload of notes all of a sudden for a second time because it was shared to one of those creepy blogs that writes scenarios on your photos. We are now lovers and she bullied me (apparently previously male) into drinking a magic potion that would turn me into a subservient sex doll. Lovely lurid details about the shrivelling sensation of a dick turning into a clit and all. I'd seen screencaps of that shit in cgl threads before, but I never figured I'd encounter it directly.

I feel so depressed with the lolita situation in my country rn. We are a small European country and our body count in my city is 5 people per meetup, out of which you can expect only 3 to have decent coords each time (including me and my best friend)

I've been in this fashion for 8 years now, and I long for a decent sized, decently dressed community so much. I wouldn't need something gigantic like the UK comm either, just 10 people, wearing actual lolita coords.

We used to have that when i first joined, but then people moved on, and new people can't seem to commit to even the most basic coord.
There is this one girl that only has 2 BL dresses that she can't coord to save her life, and this other one that even has moitie, but pairs it with the most horrible shitty blouses, cheap wigs and makeup that is melting on her face. And another 1-2 that show up in casual clothes.

I am the mod of my community and I've tried numerous things, from going to nicely decorated cafes that don't require a reservation, so that people don't feel obliged to pay a lot, lolita secret santas, to even hosting a swap meet where I made sure to include older brand pieces, accessories and mooks for dirt cheap to entice people, to no avail. I am talking BTSSB jsks in good condition for 30 euros.

Occasionally, we will get an infulx of weeaboos, that think ero cosplay lolita is a thing, try to join, and we are basically polite and try to encourage them, but they never commit once they find out they have to either splurge some money or do some basic research to get good deals, and that their Misa Misa cosplay is not an acceptable coord.

Shit, I know that my country is relatively poor by European standards, but we have a considerable BJD community, which is a much more expensive hobby, so this shit is not an excuse.

Why is the trans/non-binary/gq/etc community that goes to cons so hard to get along with? I'm a heavily reformed former fundie who was really shitty to that community in particular a long time ago, and has tried my absolute best to show that I've changed my tune and want to support them and be inclusive, but holy shit, I'm like 1-6 on meeting people in these communities who I can tolerate at all. They tend to turn out to be incredibly judgmental themselves, get super pissed when you disagree with them on the littlest unrelated thing, or, in one particular example, feel they have a right to define and tell me how to fulfill *my* gender role (I guess because they figured I'm an easy person to kick down the masculinity ladder and boost themselves up?).

I'm trying to atone for being a shitty bigot for years, and yet every opportunity I get to try and make things right and feel like I've done my part to balance my karma, the people I get are just fucking awful people in general. I'm getting a negative reflex to meeting people like that at this point because of all these bad experiences and I *know* that's bad, so it just makes me feel worse.

Fuck, why can't they just accept my support?

At first, I was really embarrassed. Like, humiliated beyond belief that I had gotten caught up with this, and dragged a friend along with me. I remember feeling really sick and my face and ears just burning red with shame. Then I got really angry. Scream-and-beat-someone-up angry, but you can't beat someone up through a computer, so I started looking into how to take it down.

Unfortunately, because they reblogged and didn't re-upload, my reports didn't do shit. The blog was marked 18+, and they didn't "steal" my intellectual property in reblogging with a new caption, so I found nothing but FAQs saying "just block them". Honestly, recounting all of this again is making me feel vaguely angry-queasy all over.

Now I don't post on Tumblr at all, because it's happening more and more with ddlg blogs coopting lolita coord posts as well. And that blow-up with the lesbian lolitas blog last year was kind of an awkward reminder of the whole thing.

Hilariously, I remember when that unseelie bitch was using photos on dollification sites, and thinking what a shame it was that that happened to those girls. I never thought that I'd have someone reblogging my stuff to a fantasy transformation fetish blog.

People who work don't have the time to keep up with weebshit unless they're realllllly dedicated to it (i.e. it's their main hobby). NEETs who are even slightly into anime end up watching a lot of it because of their boundless free time.

When I was in high school I watched quite a bit of anime - I never considered myself super into it but I watched enough for people to always call me a weeb. Once I got past my first year of uni I stopped keeping up with it because I was working/studying/cooking/cleaning/outside/whatever. I could have watched 2-3 hours a week if I'd been really dedicated but I liked other hobbies more so I just stopped watching anime. Nowadays I only watch 1-2 series a year, usually because they've been recommended to me as the best of the season by weeb friends, and have basically become a filthy casual.

Inspired a tangent; sage for off topic.

There is a mtf trans woman in my life who started transitioning in her late 30s and is built like a linebacker with a beer belly. I don't care about her build and she is working on this via exercise and diet; as you can imagine--but the problem is that she does care as priority one...it seems her definition of being an ~actual~ woman is incredibly contingent on having a "pornstar body". This is problematic not only because it's insulting and vapid; but also because it's a gap too far for her to cross without incresiously extensive major plastic surgery; so it's just not gonna happen for her. I dont know how to comfort her as a friend when she breaks out the waterworks over not being Nigiri.

If anyone says that some noncoherent nearly-ita coord reminds them of "old street snaps" I lose my shit. I think my rage is pretty unreasonable, but this makes all of old school look bad. If some random girl(bonus points if she's asian) can't dress herself but is cute enough and her dress isn't apparentely milanoo, there is always someone saying that they like it, and it could pass as an "old street snap".

My boyfriend and I are moving in together really soon. We're both so excited and have all these plans and ideas set up and ready for the new place, including both of us getting new jobs and changing our whole wardrobes (hello daily lolita!) but it's still a month and a half away... and it's so draining and soul-sucking knowing it's going to get better and being so determined for change but having to sit through the shittiness and waiting for the change to come to me when I'm so used to just jumping up and making things better around me to improve my life instantly.
I know this is over dramatic but it feels like I'm sitting in a river of mud and gunk and being so close to the shore line, but all that's left to do is sit in the shit and wait until I drift towards the shore because struggling to make it move faster only makes me sink deeper.

Last year I joined a cosplay comm that already had established friendships and whatnot, but I slowly started to find myself talking to more people and making acquaintances with everyone there and ended up actually meeting a guy that I'm now dating. I was going through a really great period of "Wow, I'm dating this amazing guy, we all have the same friend group and we do stuff together, this is great!" Well, now it's summer (it's a pretty college student-centric comm) and while my bf and I are among the ones that have stayed in the area over the summer, I work 2+ jobs (waiting to hear back from one in the field I've actually studied for, but it's parttime so it would be a third job, that it's own long story) and my bf works a full time job during the day, and I work usually at night so there's few times I get to see him. That's cool, but now he's starting to hang out with our friends without me. Now, I can't say "our friends" in confidence because he's known them longer, but for example the other day they all hung out when I wasn't at work and when I mentioned how "Yeah, I was free" he just said "Yeah, you probably shouldn't have come." And like, they all talk and plan stuff behind my back and my bf MIGHT casually say "I'm doing this with these people if you wanna do that", but I'm never actually invited. It's either I'm hanging out with my boyfriend, or they've made plans with my boyfriend and I'm just sort of...there. It makes me feel weird because we have a friend and her boyfriend that we sort of make jokes about for having that same dynamic and I'm worried that these "friends" actually dislike me, and that my bf might be planning to break up with me. Obviously I'm overthinking and can't bring this up with him because I don't wanna scare him away, but I'm really scared. I love him and I don't want to break up because our friends hate me.

Thank you anon. For the most part I am fine, money wise. I think the sudden obsession with money is a coping mechanism that came up. Or something. I obviously cared before but not to this degree. Thankfully the sane part of me tells me to hold off all selling until I know that I'm better. Thank god selling takes effort, because deep down I know I'll regret it a lot. I didn't see this break up coming and I was hoping that we would spend our lives together, so it came down pretty hard and fast.

Also that's true! Honestly, I know for a fact that I am not mentally stable at the moment yet, but hopefully in a few weeks, I can enjoy my husbando, painful reminder free! It's the first time I thought about this sort of hogwash. Break ups have brought me down almost to the level of tumblr kin-circle skum. Lovely.

I wouldn't worry about her. In fact, I wouldn't try bringing her up if he barely talks about her in the first place. Somebody's looks are not everything.

Plus, you likely are just as beautiful to him because you are different. Men find differences in women beautiful most the time. A trashy, tall blond with sharp features has its appeal, but so does a petite brunette with cute facial features. I guess what I'm saying is don't compare your features to someone else because they'll never add up. She's hot, sure. However, remember that he finds your own features cute despite being the exact opposite in your view. Men find all sorts of things beautiful.

Then later I got another blood test done because im getting set up to get my tubes tied, came in for my checkup and the new doctor let me know that I was right, my thyroid levels (T3) are low, and I am also low on B12 and Vitamin D! He set me up with medication and I am so happy.

He not only didnt dismiss me (unlike my women doctors) when I said I wanted a tubal ligation, he also is helping my thyroid out which is going to help my weight out! FINALLY

Some friends of mine did a photo shoot with a cosplay photog about nine months ago and paid her for, I think, five images. So far, they've only gotten back two, and when they showed me the most recent one, I was so pissed for them. It looked like the photog had just put them through a bad meitu or snapchat filter. Their eyes looked so fucking bad. I encouraged them to say something about it, especially considering that looking at this photog's work on photos of her friends, she clearly did a much sloppier job on my friends' photos than she is capable of, but my friends are too nice to say anything. It's so bad that I wish I could message her on their behalf. Like, to wait almost a year and shit out one decent image and then a terrible one out of five promised during that whole time?

I've had the opposite experience with doctors. First male doctor told me that it was "all in my head" and that I would be fine. Tried to prescribe me anti-psychotics for physical symptoms because he didn't want to look for a source of the problems. Enter female RN who directed me to a (young, female) specialist who found the autoimmune issue in question. I then moved.

Second male doctor asked me if I'd considered stopping my (vital to keeping my autoimmune condition in check) medication to see if I could go without it when I first saw him. Then ignored my calls for over a week when I tried to ask if I could start them again, because I was close to going into the hospital. Third male doctor told me that I didn't need birth control at all, because I was in a monogamous relationship and it was a good "anchor" for that relationship, and grudgingly agreed to prescribe the pill after I argued that I didn't want kids repeatedly, and neither does my partner.

New female GP has always listened to my concerns and doesn't dismiss me outright, agreed to getting me the BC implant when the pill failed me. New female specialist suggests things (and has been right both times something was awry) before I ask about them, based on symptoms when I see her every six months.

I thought that age might be a factor as well, because two of the male doctors are in their 60s, the first was in his late 30s, but the new GP is in her early 60s, while the two female specialists were in their mid 30s when I saw them. So maybe not so much.

I really feel like cosplay has filled some sort of a void in my life that I didnt even know I had. Its great but its also scary as heck as I used to be weirded out by those hardcore cosplayers whose life revolves around cosplay, but now im definitely becoming one myself. I work at a shitty dead end job so my hobbies are definitely important to me but i never thought i was going to be one of those people who look forward to their next paycheck only to buy more cosplay supplies.
Even at work all i can think of is cosplay when what i should be thinking about is stuff like what do i want to do with my life, what should i study or what kind of job should i apply for. You know, adult things, because im turning 24 soon and i have no aim in life aside from hobbies.

I agree with >>9539116 that a job would probably benefit you, but, depending on where you live, there might be so few jobs to go round that you're almost taking the opportunity away from someone who actually needs the money. If you want to feel better about your income, spend more of it within the local economy instead of sending it all abroad to Japan, e.g. having days out at local cafés.

Sorry about the horrible week and the anxiety.

Life is usually full of small ups and downs and people tend who are in the "grind" tend to get stuck in it. Lolita is a fun escape from reality, but if you're chasing a bunch of material goods in lieu of truly evaluating why your life is unsatisfying and why you feel you should spend money for fulfillment, maybe you should take a breather and have some inner dialogue.

If you truly feel like burando is the way to happiness, maybe you should leave your husband and find a sugar daddy, IF you think that will fulfill you. It's your life, you can do what you want with it, just know:

・It's hard to truly accept that you are not what you buy and comparing your life to others will only make you more pessimistic, especially if you can not or will not change it.
・You should communicate these things with your husband, too. Hopefully you consider him a friend and an ear you can vent to. Open communication in your relationship can possibly begin to remedy some of these issues.

I feel like I know you, I'm in a tiny Euro comm who fits all of your description very well.
I wish I was more active in my own comm but I feel like my wardrobe is too small and limited at the moment and I'm scared to be that one really bland lolita who wears almost always the same. I don't doubt there are a lot more people who think the same and end up not joining or not actively participating because of that. I've also had the chance to join an UK comm while living there and never attended a single meet because I was terrified of being an awkward mess and looking like trash next to some of the really good lolitas there. They also seemed to know almost all of eachother really well so I was intimidated to join (joined the fb comm, talked myself into attending a meet several times and then always gave up last minute out of fear).
For my home country's comm, I've attended a single meet at a con (which made it less intimidating), mostly because living abroad made it very hard to be back home while meets happened.
I think many people have these same fears, either of looking bad next to more experienced members or feeling like they're butting in a group of people who are already friends and being awkward/anxious when meeting new people.
I understand your frustrations anon but I also understand why sometimes people don't join. I'm sure you're doing a great job as a mod, some people just can't deal with their own insecurities unfortunately.

last year I met a cosplayer that gets shipped with me because our characters have very similar theme.
This year I was supposed to meet her again for a proper photo shooting with lots of pictures and different poses.

I meet her and wait for her to finish talking there are multiple photographers in the area
while I wait I rearrange my armour.
She then tells her BF "can you take my cell phone and take a few pictures of me and that weird guy ?"
"he's some *action* guy and I'm a *action* girl so it kinda fits" what are you again?
I couldn't fucking believe that I had to tell her what my character was "I'm an *action* Warrior!!!"
Her BF takes a few pictures on 2 poses
"I'll send you the pictures on FB"
I actually had more ideas for poses n stuff but I noticed that my presence was no longer desired so I left very confused and disappointed.

Why would she treat me like I was nobody? , yesterday we were very friendly to each other and she was looking forward for the photo shoot tomorrow as well since we waited for a year to meet up again. She knew exactly who I was Cosplaying as and we talked about it a lot. I knew she had a boyfriend form the very start.
I looked up to her, she was my first and so far only Cosplay friend, she was my Cosplay senpai with lots of experience.
I want just want more friends that Cosplay but just friends would be great too, I really tough I could find some friends at cons, but they walk away so fast every time or live at the opposite side of the world.

It doesn't matter how they insult you but who insults you and it hits me hard that she pretended to not know me or my character anymore.
I wasn't just some weird guy yesterday.

Am I overreacting like a little bitch? This makes me quite sad.

I'm too self conscious to let myself be ita, I'm always careful with what I wear but it's still hard not to worry about being judged or looked down upon in a fashion related hobby, especially when I see everyone in the comms with far bigger/better wardrobes. I don't doubt most of these insecurities might be pointless/stupid but it's not like I do it on purpose. I'm in a cosplay community with shitloads of drama and badmouthing, which doesn't help either.
My plan is to distance myself from all that crap and just focus on building my wardrobe and doing my thing for a while, I really need some time to build my self-esteem as well. I want to attend a couple meets of my home country's comm, since I know a couple people from it and language is less of an issue, to get started. Maybe one day I'll take a step into the UK comm.

My style has changed over the past few years. I feel like I'm cosplaying as my past self every time I wear something I feel ehh about but I know I would have loved when I was younger. It's a really weird feeling and it makes me feel sad for some reason. I looked through some old photos and my 2014 style was actually pretty cute and I still own a lot of the same pieces, but I'd feel so weird in it now.

Nothing I wear makes me feel myself any more. I wish I could put on an outfit that makes me feel "This is it!

I won't meme at you about finding your motivation too hard. Have you tried thinking back into what got you into cosplay? Good friends who had, who moved away or changed interest? The novelty of the events and the shine it had to a younger you, before you saw all the shit buried underneath?

I can't tell you why you're feeling down. You've got to figure that out, then look for ways to recapture the feeling or accept that the feeling is gone, never to return, and there's nothing to do about it. Maybe there's another feeling or positive emotion you want to try bringing about instead of whatever you had in the past.

>> No.9543872

Thinking of quitting cosplay lately. Just zero motivation to work on stuff, feeling like it's a huge waste of money. I dont know when it started, but I really just want to dump all my old wigs and costumes and fabrics into a trash bin and be done with it. I thought seeing AX stuff would make me jealous and seeing CMVs would motivate me again, but I honestly forgot until my friends messaged me if I wanted anything from AA. I actually feel not bothered and even relieved im not living through AX hell this year. It kind of bums me out because I met some of my best friends through cosplay, but I'm just not into that or going to cons anymore.

>> No.9543961

OP here. Form your descpription, I don't think you match anyone I've met, but I wish I did know you anon, you seem genuinely interested in the fashion at the very least.

I think may lolitas love improving together, so don;t be shy, go meet your comm and see what comes out of it. I'd rather have more people that at least tried and were halfway there, and ask for advice, rather than being alone.

I agree. 'Nice guy game' is transparent, so a dude can't realistically date anyone out of his league.

The goal for dudes is to be interesting enough for a cute girl to continue the conversation. Generally speaking, it is easier for a dude to be interesting by being a asshole than by being wholesome.

I'm not saying this is a good thing, I'm just adding context to the original question of "Why did negging ever become a thing?". It's like how clickbait titles suck and everyone hates them, but they do get attention.

FWIW I don't regret it. I love owning the dresses, and getting dressed up at home to take photos is fun, even if it doesn't go anywhere. I want to wear it to a con, but I need to arrange to go to a con that isn't near where I live.
I'm in the US, and I certainly wouldn't lose my job, but it would make my coworkers unbearable - I already get enough shit for casual things like playing video games. In my job, there are only maybe 4 out of 50 people I see on a daily basis who are within 15 years of my age, and only 1 is younger. They're mostly gossipy people in their late 50s who believe that sports and drinking are the only acceptable hobbies for men.
I'll try to keep that in mind.

I know I shouldn't be such a fucking materialistic person but I still feel disappointed, even though I know I'll value the memories with my friends more.

Nice job, I'm always too lazy to do the fabric softener and water method because I'm somehow scared of fucking up and damaging the wig. The tutorials I've seen for it have been for lower-end cosplay wigs and seem to have completely changed the colour and texture of the wig as well as removing the shine, so I'm worried that if I tried it on a fairly good-quality lolita wig that just has a tiny bit of shine it'd end up wrecking the colour or making it unnaturally matte or something.
